Daylight lightting in FSX...or just wishful thinking ?

Recommended Posts

Guest Sybull

Whilst I do not yet have FSX, I regularly visit this forum. Now I don't know if it was my imagination or not, but I sure I read somewhere that one of the features that came with DX10 in FSX was "realtime" lighting IN the virtual cockpit from outside (I.E the sun/Moon) so that the lighting/shadows/reflections in the cockpit would be representative of the angle/brightness of the sun or moon. Is this true ? I havn't seen any screenshots demonstrating this and it is one feature which I think would add to the imerssion factor when flying in a VC. Am I going mad ?

Thank you very much for the reply. Looks very very promising. I think once that becomes more commonplace it will be a really good effect. Quite soon, with the amount processors in a PC (4xCPU's, 2xGPU's, 1x PPU's etc) flight sims are going to finally match what we were imagining when when playing Sublogics Flight simulator II.It's official...I'm not going mad
